Future efficient mining operations will be dependent upon a highlycompetent and well motivated work force, on all levels. The mining companieswill have to recruit their personnel from a limited group of talented individualswith high demands and expectations on future work. In order to be successfulwith this, the companies must offer attractive workplaces that are safe, sound,interesting and can offer challenging work tasks too. In this paper we discuss anumber of potential challenges for the future mining industry based on the factthat the majority of the mines are expected to be deeper and located in remoteareas. Our intention is to illustrate a possible way forward for the miningindustry. We start by describing a vision for such a safe and attractive mine.After that we present a comprehensive and possible research agenda necessaryfor creating the ‘New Attractive Mine’.
